12/19/2015 — California Alert — Methane Eruption at FRACKING operation – Climate Consequences
Get the word out to the people on the West coast. Their professionals ignored the problem as it was building, now a giant methane plume erupts from the same operation that was hit by multiple earthquakes last year.
At the time when the earthquakes began striking these fracking / gas / oil operations the professionals actually went so far as to publicly deny the relation between the earthquakes which have been striking, and the large gas/oil pumping operations directly above the EQ epicenters.
Now, move forward several months after the earthquakes struck, several months AFTER Dr. Lucille Jones (California professional) downplayed the connection of the earthquakes occurring around North Los Angeles to the gas operations which are now uncontrollably blasting off large plumes of gas.
Ironic that the deniers of the problem last year now have a large ongoing eruption of methane gas occurring just North of Los Angeles, California.
This eruption of gas cannot be ignored — specifically that it is occurring directly from a large pumping / drilling operation (fracking + injection) which they denied had any relation to the seismic unrest below it.
The methane eruption is part of a much larger series of issues which need full explanation.
This video attempts to explain the causes behind why the methane is erupting in Los Angeles, who had the chance to prevent this from happening, and what to expect in the future now that this has occurred.

5/27/2014 — Colorado 4 MILE LONG Landslide @ FRACKING operation
Undeniable screenshot proof of the FRACKING INJECTION WELL OPERATION at the Colorado landslide location here:
and here is proof the area is not only used for fracking, but also for CO2 storage…literally like the carbonation in a can of soda… stored in HIGH PRESSURE SANDS underground…
May 28 2014: They turned OFF the gas wells in the area around Collbran Colorado
For those who don’t understand, or those who are trying to deny the fracking connection to this huge landslide… let me explain a bit more.
First, no one can deny there is indeed a fracking operation at the landslide location. This is a fact.
In order to explain why this 4 mile landslide occurred at the fracking operation, you must first understand how the plate is moving currently, and how the weak spots are showing excessive movement.
Current examples of the weak spot / craton edge movement…
The earthquake swarms in Idaho near Red Butte (western portion of the yellowstone magma chamber) , and swarms at Yellowstone park itself, all swarms happening over the past 2 months….
Also, the huge landslide in Washington State (preceded by an earthquake)… the other landslide in Jackson Hole Wyoming at a dormant volcanic Butte… the earthquake swarms at the fracking operations in Oklahoma + Texas + South Colorado, the odd earthquakes in Utah, Nevada and California at the dormant volcanic sites, the larger earthquakes off the coast of California and Oregon at the fresh lavic fields…. the announcement that magma chambers in the Pacific Northwest at Mount Saint Helens and Yellowstone are “recharging”……
Finally, the confirmation that Yellowstone has raised FOUR inches, and moved 1inch Southeast since NEW YEARS . Yellowstone located along the edge of the craton, proves the edge is being moved SOUTHEAST……. add in the earthquakes along the Southern + Eastern edges of the craton , movement in Virginia, Quebec Canada, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, and Tennessee.
Put it all together…. the craton edge is being displaced. The weak spots, such as dormant volcanic chains, new lavic fields, and FRACKING operations are showing heavy movement . This is due to the entire edge of the North American craton being displaced (as evidenced by the earthquake activity occurring directly upon the edge of it).
Fracking operations contain hundreds (in some cases thousands) of drill sites. Each drilled out shaft is nothing more than a man made “tube” in the ground. Similar to what mother nature would produce in a volcanic chain. Multiple fractures out of hollow tubes in the ground. Earthquakes occur naturally at the weak points…. like a perforation in a box makes it easy to bend, the perforations in the crust provide a point for pressure release.
Officals are quick to jump to “flooding” in these landslide events. Normally, I would not disagree, however the location of this huge collapse in Colorado , screams out to me as being tectonic related.
Flooding was the “reason” used in Washington State, also in Jackson Hole Wyoming. A week or so after Jackson Hole actually split in half, the main stream media acknowledged it was a BUTTE which split, not due to flooding. The Washington state landslide was hushed up very quickly after the announcement that a SEISMIC EVENT (1.0M to 2.0M) occurred about an hour before the landslide.
This Colorado landslide appears to be more rock and sand than any “water”. Don’t see flooding waters, no running streams, not even much “mud” in any of the shots.
My best informed guess on this, is that craton pressure caused a fracture at the fracking operation. Possibly an underground aquifer, mixed with frack sand pumped in under high pressure for several years is what caused this massive “flow”.
Not seeing the WATER that could have caused this… anyone have ANY PROOF of water? All I’m seeing is rock and sand mixed with trees knocked over at HIGH SPEED .. like a lahar flow, not a mud slide.
Speaking of Lahar flows, Dotsero volcano is just 50 miles Northeast , Colorado’s only well known volcano which is located of I-70….. also due North are the Hot Springs, and just North of the Hot Springs is Jackson Hole which had its own collapse.
We can expect more movement (earthquake wise) along the edge of the craton , which means we can expect future large collapses like this in the future.
(collapse isn’t the right term, at this point, I’d call this an “eruption” of debris coming from a mix of an aquifer with a fracking operation under high pressure all being released at once due to a larger plate movement issue)
Methane releases at fracking operations across the midwest and South US:
Professionals compare Bayou Corne Louisiana methane release to “volcano”: Bubbles of methane mixed with hydrogen sulfide gas..
Colorado Fracking operation erupts with methane and stored CO2 producing a large lahar extending at least 4 miles from the blown operation :

“Frackie,” or Fracking Chemical Cocktail, is all about fracking, chemicals, drilling and money.
Here she explains all the things fracking does to the environment, a litany of horrors that includes destroying groundwater, spreading radiation, causing earthquakes and moonscaping the environment.
EnviroReporter’s Michael Collins can’t fathom how Frackie thinks all of her fracking destructiveness is “fracktastic” but he knows a good frack when he sees one. See http://www.toxies.com for more information about the Toxie Awards.

5/31/2014 — 4 Mile Long eruption of Liquid Sand + stored CO2 @ Fracking operation in Colorado
Published on May 31, 2014
Update June 3, 2014
3.4m fracking earthquake struck Greeley Colorado a day after I made this video…. admitted fracking, University of Colorado now investigating… blaming wastewater injection… shake reports felt in Loveland… quote residents ‘like a sledge hammer on the roof’
Full breakdown of the Collbrand Colorado “landslide” from our live broadcast on Friday Night (May 30 2014). All links below.
It appears a large deposit of high pressure liquid sand, underground at the Collbran Colorado fracking location, found a weak point to the surface.
After doing some research on the “Collbran Gas System” , which is part of the Piceance shale deposit, I found that in addition to hydraulic fracturing (fracking), there is also a LARGE amount of CO2 being pumped into the ground (like carbonation in a can of soda)…. a process called “Carbon Sequestration”, where CO2 is pumped into old oil wells filled with liquid frack sands.
Carbon Sequestration is a Geoengineering method to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere (under the belief that there is global warming due to excessive CO2 in the atmosphere).
The geoengineers have partnered up with the US Government, and oil companies — to use old oil wells to “store” Carbon Dioxide gas. (each well thousands of feet deep, capable of being filled and compressed with billions of cubic feet of gas across thousands of old wells).
It is my supposition that a high pressure liquid sand CO2 “eruption” occurred at the fracking operation (the weakest point in the crust due to drilling)…
The weak point allowed the liquid frack sands, along with subterranean high pressure sands, along with highly compressed CO2 to all “erupt” and flow down the mountain more like a LAHAR than a “landslide”.
Complete lack of water , and the presence of a sandy silicate mixture, also the confirmed CO2 storage… means we’re getting a bogus line from the powers that be on the reasons behind this fracture.

Part One of this edition of FRACKING NIGHTMARE includes the exposure of AMANDA WEBSTER, Assistant Police & Crime Commissioner for Lancashire … and one of the UK’s leading ‘PROTEST BUSTERS’; a serious CONFLICT OF INTERESTS. On one hand she has a responsibility for ensuring that Lancashire Police facilitate peaceful protests … and on the other, she is engaged by Corporate clients to prevent people raising awareness of their Crimes Against humanity!?
Acutally, the AMANDA WEBSTER segment is in Part Two (from 30:30). A Freedom of Information request has been submitted to establish the capacity in which Amanda Webster was present at Barton Moss on Monday 23rd December 2013!?

In episode 2, I speak with Brian Monk, a farmer from Southern Queensland whose health and livelihood has been seriously impacted by the unconventional gas industry. Search also for the ‘List of the Harmed’ … this industry is an abomination and threatens to turn large tracts of the UK into an industrial wasteland … not to mention the fact that property prices will collapse wherever the Shale gas/CBM frackers role into town!||ukcolumn|

Ian R. Crane reviews the Barton Moss eviction hearing and exposes the blatant corporatism of John Whittaker and Peel Holdings. Tina Louise is Ian’s guest on the show.
The reality is that Fracking CANNOT be done safely … PERIOD!
I have never suggested that an absolute ban on fossil fuels is either practicable or necessary … despite the fact that viable alternatives do indeed exist but the patents are either owned or controlled by the hydro-carbon industry. This is NOT a one-dimensional issue. Deep geo-politics, driven by global corporatist hegemony, pretty much calls the shots (for the moment). Meanwhile, if we allow the Mother-Frackers to be unleashed across the UK, the water supply will become so contaminated that future generations will be controlled by those who control the water supply … starting with Nestle!

Special Report: EQ Swarms and Pacific Death
Published on Aug 20, 2014
Swarms! Yellowstone! WTF Near OR/CA Border & Pacific DEATH.
In this special report we look at the phenomena of Earthquake Swarms, and why, even when not strong, swarms can tell you something is going on underground. Fracking in Oklahoma, and Geothermal in Northern California are CLEARLY cause for concern. Normal swarms by comparison are the normal releasing of pressure near fault zones. The swarms we are looking at are NOT. Yellowstone’s odd swarming at this time and its quaking all round the caldera perimeter. The swarm that is really MOST bizarre and concerning because of the shear number (most of them today within an hour of each other) and the odd locations, most notably by the Oregon/California border.
Finally, we share a little clip from HORROR “Pacific Ocean Now Dead From Fukushima Radiation” as presented by our friend BeautifulGirlByDana:
